NO!!! Spelt is another name for wheat...do NOT eat it. I had a health food store sell me a loaf of spelt bread the day of my diagnosis, it is not safe for us to have. Throw it out.

Which grains are safe, which are not?

The common list of forbidden grains is: wheat, rye, barley and oats.
Unfortunately, there are variants out there that go by other names. Durum and semolina are names for certain kinds of wheat that have been bred for specific uses. Both spelt and kamut are versions of wheat. (Other names for these: spelta, Polish wheat, einkorn and small spelt). Bulgur is wheat that's been specially processed. Triticale, a grain crossbred from wheat and rye, is definitely on the toxic list.

Splet is in the wheat family, it is not atcually wheat but it does contain gluten. That is why we cannot have it but those with wheat allergies are able to eat spelt instead.
